ABTgirl14 Posted January 23, 2006 Report Share Posted January 23, 2006 (edited) ** I have been to summer programs for 4 summers now and I felt as if I have thoroughly enjoyed them all and improved a lot. However, two years ago I switched to a different studio that offers better training and is in a more professional atmosphere. I have already started doing auditions, however my teacher feels that I should stay home this summer and go to my studios 6 week summer intensive. Since I am 16 (17 in May), my teacher feels that there are certain things that I need to work on that she could help me with because she already knows me and I would get more attention and help to my weaknesses. My question is, since I am getting older, how will not going to a summer intensive affect me in the long run? I want to go to a college and major in ballet (such as butler or indiana) so I won't be auditioning for companies anytime soon. I am really in a situation because I love going away to programs and getting to take class with new teachers, meet new friends, and enjoy the experience, but I'm wondering if staying home would be more beneficial for me? Thanks in advance and I apologize for this lengthy post. **This post was split off from another topic in the General SI forum. Edited January 23, 2006 by BW Quote Link to comment
